French Imam on Day of Paris Attacks: Muslims Should Rule France


As French authorities struggle to get to grips with the vast network of Muslim extremists in its country - some 10,000-strong according to official estimates - a sermon recorded at a mosque in southern France on the day of last week's attacks in Paris illustrates how extremist preachers are spreading radical Islamist doctrines, and talking openly about taking over the country

During his sermon in Montpellier, translated by MEMRI, Imam Mohammed Khatabi sought to rile up the crowd by suggesting that "Westerners" do not see Muslims as human, while urging them to reject any affiliation with or loyalty to the French Republic.

"Our banner, our homeland, our borders, our tribe, and our nation are all (summed up in the phrase) 'there is no God but Allah and Muhammed is his messenger,'" he said, outlining the same pan-Islamic creed shared by Islamist groups including ISIS, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood.

He accused the French government of wanting to fly a French flag over the mosque in order to "control" French Muslims. "I swear to Allah that they want a flag to fly over this mosque. They want it to belong to some country or another."

France and other Western nations seek to control Muslims "because the Muslim is a sleeping giant, and if he awakens woe betide anyone around, because he will restore glory to humanity." he said, continuing to outline how Western legal systems are in fact "Zionist" plots. "According to scientific statistics, all the institutions in charge of human rights are Zionists," he informed his audience.

Towards the end of his speech, Khatabi spoke of a desire for Muslims to "rule" Europe according to Islamic law. "We want our children to penetrate the political realm in the West," he declared. "We dream of seeing our children become ministers and dignitaries, and even presidents. Why not? We want them to rule France one day, to rule Belgium, Germany and Britain. You will never get [your children] there through the means of Islam. No. You must get them there through their [Western] rules, not yours," he concluded sarcastically.

Palestinian Media, PA Blame Israel for Paris Terror Attacks

By &

The Palestinian Authority's ruling Fatah movement exploited the Paris terror attack to spout its own agenda, Palestinian Media Watch reported Sunday, equating Israel with Islamic State (ISIS). Fatah implied that Israel is the equivalent of Islamic State by showing the Palestinian flag next to the flags of Russia, Lebanon and France in a Facebook post.

The flags refer to recent ISIS terror attacks that took place in and against these countries: the explosion on a Russian plane in Egypt that killed everyone on board, in total 224 (Oct. 31, 2015), a double suicide bombing in Beirut, Lebanon, that killed at least 41 and wounded over 200 (Nov. 12, 2015), and the attacks in Paris, France, which killed 129 and wounded over 300 in several simultaneous shooting and suicide bombing attacks (Nov. 13, 2015).

"Terror is terror and we condemn all terror," Fatah said, in a post dated Saturday. "Be it destroying houses in Nablus (Shechem - ed.) and killing our children by Israel or hitting a Russian plane over Egypt. The Paris attacks are criminal acts done by coward terrorists."

The author added that Israel is the one benefiting from these attacks and that they serve the "goals" of Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu, who "hides in his soul enough evil to burn the world." One day later, the paper published a cartoon showing an Israeli decapitating the Al-Aqsa Mosque [which is built on Judaism's holiest site, the Temple Mount - ed.] next to an ISIS terrorist beheading a hostage, simultaneously and with the same sword, declaring that Israel and ISIS are the same.

In addition, an Op/Ed in the official PA daily, Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, claimed that the Mossad - Israel's intelligence service - orchestrated the Paris attacks, claiming that it was a hit designed to cripple Europe for deciding to label goods made in Judea, Samaria, Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights.

"It is not a coincidence that human blood was exploded in Paris at the same time that certain European sanctions are beginning to be implemented against settlement products, and while France leads Europe in advising the [UN] Security Council that will implement the two-state solution, Palestine and Israel — which the Israelis see as a warning of sudden danger coming from the direction of Europe, where the Zionist, occupying, settling endeavor was born…" the piece stated.

"The wise and correct thing is to look for who benefits," the op-ed continues. "In short: They need to search the last place reached by the octopus arms of the Mossad… It is clear that its `Mossad' will burn Beirut and Paris in order to achieve [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu's goals. He, who challenged the master of the White House, hides in his soul enough evil to burn the world.

"The wise and correct thing is to look for who benefits," the op-ed continued. "In short: They need to search the last place reached by the octopus arms of the Mossad… It is clear that its `Mossad' will burn Beirut and Paris in order to achieve [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu's goals. He, who challenged the master of the White House, hides in his soul enough evil to burn the world."

The inflammatory op-ed is the latest examples of ongoing incitement by the PA against Israel. Top PA leaders, including Abbas, Palestinian Sports Union chief Jibril Rajoub, and chief negotiator Saeb Erekat have all promoted hatred of the Jewish state.

In September, Abbas called on Palestinians to prevent Jews from "defiling" Jerusalem's holy places with their "filthy feet." His comments drew criticism from United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who expressed concern that Abbas' inflammatory rhetoric was increasing tensions in Jerusalem.

Earlier this month, 369 members of the United States House of Representatives signed a letter charging PA leaders with encouraging "more acts of terror," and calling on them "to take concrete steps to avoid further violence." Previously, the House voted unanimously to condemn the PA for its incitement.

Daily Attacks on Israeli Civilians

By Ed Ziegler (Commentary)

Clearly in 2015, in Israel, there has been a noticeable increase in violent attacks on civilians by Muslims . In Israel, almost every day, there are reports of attempts to murder Israelis.

On Oct. 3 two Israeli men were stabbed, in Jerusalem, and killed by a Palestinian. On the same day a mother and her two year old child were attacked. While on Oct 12, in three separate stabbing attacks in Jerusalem, six were wounded. One victim was a 13-year-old Israeli boy riding his bike.

On Oct. 13, in four separate terror attacks, three Israelis were killed and over 25 were wounded. In one attack a man rammed his car into a group at a bus stop. Then he attacked others with a meat cleaver. Oct. 14 a Palestinian man stabbed a 70-year old Jewish woman at a bus station.

One Facebook video shows Abdulhaleem Abuesha, a teacher in the Madaba refuge camp in Jordan, saying "Oh you're so strong" to his daughter, Raahf, a Palestinian preschool girl holding a knife, saying: "I want to stab a Jew." Also seen is a little boy holding a large knife and smiling.

Like other Islamic clergy Sheik Muhammad Sallah "Abu Rajab", in his October 9th. sermon, while waving a knife, called out "Stab. Oh young men attack in threes and fours cut them into body parts."

Stop ignoring the fact that Islamic terrorists are increasing their attacks throughout the world, including Europe and America. With Muslim parents and Islamic clergy preaching hate, why would anyone think terrorists won't repeat such acts here?

Jordan: Teacher Fired for Teaching Hebrew 'to Know Israel'


A teacher who taught a beginners' Hebrew course at Jordan's Petra University was fired from his post this week, after he told his students that Hebrew language would help them understand Israeli culture, Army Radio reported Monday. When questioned why they should get to know Israeli culture, the teacher replied that "Israel is a neighboring country and we have a peace agreement with it."

One of 22 students per class, Ayman al-Ma'mun, was particularly incensed about the remarks; al-Ma'mun told him that he had come to learn Hebrew so that if he wanted, he could carry out an attack against Jews and Israelis. The clash devolved into a loud argument, in which al-Ma'mun boasted he could still stay at the university for years despite his views.

The student was subsequently removed from class, but then took the issue to his Facebook page, blaming "Zionism" and complaining about the teacher to the university's administration. He and his classmates rallied for his teacher's dismissal; Petra University could not withstand the pressure, and fired the teacher two days later. Media outlets in Jordan did not approach the teacher himself for comment.

Former Israeli ambassador to Jordan, Oded Eran, noted that this was not an unusual occurrence from what he saw while he served in the post. "Most of the professional associations - journalists, doctors, lawyers - all of them [in Jordan are] anti-Israel," he said, adding that some of this has to do with the Palestinian population's predominant presence in Amman. The majority of Jordanians citizens and residents are in fact Palestinians.

"We are scapegoat," said the former ambassador, adding that there are few who are willing to expose themselves and prove that there is interest among much of the Jordanian population to maintain ties with Israel.

Montana Town Hosts 280 Unexpected Israeli Arrivals with Kosher Food


The people of Billings, Montana didn't know what hit them: They suddenly found themselves, and their little airport, inundated with nearly 300 passengers who had just arrived from Tel Aviv.

Engine trouble had led El Al Flight 5, from Israel to Los Angeles, to make an emergency stop at the nearest airport – which happened to be Billings Logan International, the largest airport in the 7th-least populous state in the United States.

All 279 passengers were safe, and another plane was set to be flown in from New Jersey to take them to Los Angeles. But what to do with them until then? After all, even though the airport is called "International," it actually has no customs and border agents – meaning that the passengers were not legally in the United States and could not be processed. In fact, the airport only serves nine cities outside of Montana – all of them American.

In addition, most of the passengers eat only Kosher food, which, as Montana Television Network (MTN) dryly reported, is not "readily available" in Billings. This is not surprising, as there are only 850 Jews in the entire state – 0.1% of the population, less than 1/20th of the proportion in the U.S. as a whole.

But, as MTN titled its special afternoon news broadcast on Sunday, "International flight emergency lands in Billings, residents pitch in to feed passengers." Two women of Billings - Kat Healy and her mother Donna - purchased kosher food and items for the passengers and personally delivered them to the airport.

Kat Healy later posted on Facebook: "Brought kosher food up to the airport for the passengers on an El Al 777 flight who had an emergency landing in Billings from their flight Tel Aviv - Los Angeles this morning. Haven't heard that much Hebrew since being in Israel. And yes, I brought hummus." MTN reported that "a rabbi from Bozeman also traveled to Billings to assist with food." The rabbi was presumably from the Chabad center in Bozeman – the only one in Montana.

The passengers continued onto Los Angeles, following an all-day delay. They spent many of those hours sequestered in a wing of the airport for security purposes, until customs and border agents arrived from Great Falls, Montana, to clear their passports, so they could remain in the country legally.
